A woman has been taken to hospital with potentially life-changing injuries following a collision on the M42.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of an RTC on the M42 Northbound between junctions 6 and 7 near Bickenhill at around 1.40pm. An ambulance, paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a van and a lorry had been involved in a collision.

“The passenger of the van, a woman, had to be extricated from the vehicle with the assistance of fire colleagues. Ambulance crews provided advanced trauma care for potentially life-changing injuries before she was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for further treatment.

“The driver of the van, a man, was assessed and treated for injuries not believed to be serious before being conveyed by land ambulance to the same hospital.

“There were no other injured patients”.
